About Us

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act we stand committed against housing discrimination.

Oaktown Properties is a local boutique real estate investment company.  

We are working to build lasting property value through creative redevelopment of distressed buildings and urban infill development.

  • Oakland is the beautiful and culturally diverse city we are proud to call home.  

  • We stay closely connected to our tenants by diligently performing all aspects of leasing, management, and property maintenance. 

  • We maintain a positive workplace atmosphere with a safety-first approach by holding weekly safety meetings and adhering to OSHA standards.

  • In our redevelopment work, we place value on historic preservation, smart layout, creative re-use, and energy efficiency as guiding principles.  

  • Our craftsmanship can be seen in the finished product as it stands the test of time enduring the demands of rental housing.  

Dima Tsenter

Born in Leningrad, Russia, Dima's family fled their homeland as refugees and immigrated to the United States in 1980.  Dima earned a bachelors degree in Computer Science Engineering  from UCLA. After a few forgettable years of Silicon Valley cubicles, Dima moved down to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being a ceramics sculptor.  To pay the bills, he worked at numerous internet start-ups.   In 2007 Dima founded Oaktown Properties with his initial purchase of a distressed four unit property on Seminary Ave. in East Oakland.
